A Brief on Postojna Cave
Postojna Cave is a well-known cave in Europe and the largest of the Classical Karst. Carved by the Pivka River, the cave is 24 kilometres long with numerous underground passages, galleries and halls. It was not known when the cave was first officially discovered but records had shown that the first visitors to the cave dated back to more than 800 years ago. Modern age tourism was developed in 1818, after a large inner area of Postojna Cave was discovered by Luka Čeč, a local of Postojna. The cave was officially opened to public by Archduke Ferdinand I in 17 August 1819, and since then, the cave has welcomed more than 35 million visitors to the cave. Here is our guide and experience (with many photos!) to this spectacular wonder!
